The tibial nerve has been reported to be often iatrogenically injured during fibular graft harvest, high tibial osteotomy and fascial release procedures. Despite this complication, there are limited data available in the literature concerning the surgical anatomy of tibial nerve branches in the deep posterior compartment of the leg. The aim of the present study was to quantitative and localize the motor nerve points for the flexor hallucis longus (FHL), tibialis posterior (TP) and flexor… CONTINUE READING
